#R3COMM3ND3D2019 with #BookBlogger Yvonne Bastian (@yvonnembee) #MeAndMyBooks #damppebbles #BookRecommendations #Publishedin2019

Hello and welcome to damppebbles! Delighted to have you join me today on day two of 2019’s #R3COMM3ND3D. Today I am thrilled to welcome another of my favourite bloggers to share the book love – the lovely Yvonne ofย Me and My Books. I love Yvonne’s blog so if you haven’t discovered it yet then head on over and say ‘hi’!

So, what is #R3COMM3ND3D2019? It’s about sharing the book love. It’s a chance for authors and book bloggers to shout about three (yes, *only* three) books they love. They can be written by any author, in any genre and published in any way (traditionally, indie press or self-published). But there is a catch. All three books must have been published in 2019. To make things interesting I have added a couple of teeny, tiny rules this year which are; 1) the book must have first been published in 2019 and 2) special editions and reissues do not count. I like to keep you lovely people on your toes ๐Ÿ˜‰.

Here are Yvonne’s three recommendations…

Out Of The Silence by Owen Mullen
This was a book I read way back in January and it still remains with me. It is crime/thriller read and but what made this book so special for me was the heartbreaking and harrowing human interest story that was woven into it. A stunning read!
Yvonne’s Review of Out Of The Silence

Dear Rosie Huges by Melanie Hudson
A book I read back in February that by the end had me a sobbing wreck. A story of a friendship re-kindled and told in a series of letters and messages. It is a heartwarming story that was full of emotion and simply had me engrossed. A beautiful read.
Yvonne’s Review of Dear Rosie Hughes


Wanderers by Chuck Wendig
This is a dystopian book, it could be set tomorrow or in a couple of years. I say dystopian but it really didn’t feel like it because of the realness behind it. The story has compassion, misunderstanding, extremism, violence, and well… if I’m being honest has a bit of pretty much everything. A fabulous read.
Yvonne’s Review of Wanderers

Great choices, thanks Yvonne. I have Wanderers on my terrifying TBR and I cannot wait to read it! I think it’s going to take a while though as I’ve heard it’s 800 pages long.

It is a fantastic way to share my love of reading and of books and it gives me a chance to give something back to an author.
